The biggest game of the NFL season is almost here.

Super Bowl 51 will be played this Sunday, Feb 5 and is scheduled to start at 6:30. NRG Stadium in Houston Texas will host the big game this year. The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons will be doing battle with hopes of becoming the NFL champion for 2016.

The Atlanta Falcons became the first team to make it to the big game by defeating the Packers, 44-21, in the NFC Championship Game. It’s only the second time in their history to make it to the Super Bowl. They have yet to win the title after a loss in Super Bowl XXXIII to the Broncos, 34-19.

The Falcons were 13-5 SU, 12-6 ATS and with Matt Ryan running the show their offense was the best in the league. This makes it look like a much closer game on paper.

The half time show over the years has been marred with controversy and it is always a huge production. For those of you interested in that, Lady Gaga is scheduled to perform.
